72. it's not elitist to tell the truth, and accept yourself for who you
are. especially since this is just something that you are born with.
nobody is going around putting labels on anybody. people will be free to decide for themselves if they fit or not.
but there really are common problems, and downsides to giftedness that are hard to deal with because of the kinds of attitudes that are all over these threads. if the topic of this group had been skin color, or low iq, a lot these spiteful posts would have been taken down in seconds, if they had been made at all. i think they sure show what kind of crap is out there.
